About the wine
Bright and fresh on both the nose and palette, yet with enough roundness to be considered medium bodied. Lemon zest, minerality, and true Chardonnay varietal characteristics are complimented by notes of nutmeg, vanilla, and light oak. We recommend you try it with simply prepared fish, chicken, pasta in a cream sauce, or while carrying around your favorite wheeled animal.
You can lead a kid to a wheeled giraffe, but you can’t make him ride it. Christian carried his everywhere, drawing some strange looks from the neighborhood. While he thought it made sense at the time, he wishes his parents would have encouraged him to be like all the other kids in the wheeled giraffe “gang” and just ride!
